    Glock 19X Range Time

    I was very fortunate this morning while at the range, got to shoot a Glock 19X. The gun continues to be as ugly as are all Glock's IMO. The grip angle is the show stopper for me. 17 and 19 round mags are a plus but would eliminate it as conceal carry for me. 38 rounds fired, no malfunctions but brass in face was rather bothersome. Would I purchase one? I doubt it, to big for me to carry and I surely don't need a 9mm target pistol.

    Had to look it up. News to me. I understand the grip angle gripe but I've never had issue with rounds to the face with any Glocks I have owned. Is that a southpaw issue Chuck? Or just that gun?
    Pardon me, Sir, for this difference of opinion. my personal interest in such questions is entirely extinct; but not my wishes for the longest possible continuance of our government on it’s pure principles.

    No not a southpaw problem, the brass in face was experienced by three different shooters. They seem to think it was a ammo problem and were going to try a different manufacturer. I left before they tried the different ammo.

    Interesting. I don’t get brass to the face.

    I use Remington and Brass Federal 115 Grain.

    I enjoy shooting mine. I plan to use mine for home defense.

    I carry a Glock 19.
